Students get to use their knowledge of surface area and other math concepts to renovate their bedroom on a budget! What a great way to give life to math concepts and relate them to the real world!
Students will choose a budget to stick to for remodelling their bedroom. They can make their room renovation as extravagant as they want, within the budget provided. Maybe they want to paint their room several different colours, or perhaps they like wallpaper. On your floors, maybe they like hardwood floors or carpet. It’s possible they want to buy blinds for their bedroom or even new curtains. The fun part is that THEY get to decide… they’re the designer!
My students loved this assignment. I use this for students who also need more of a challenge and extension of the curriculum.
